This immigration firm will claim that they can help you immigrate to Canada in as little as 6 months. They will tell you that you qualify to the immigration program without disclosing the real conditions. You may qualify but they don't tell you your real chances of getting invited to apply for a PR in Canada. The points system never goes down to 450. Not unless you score higher in the CRS points or if you have an employer waiting, you are simply throwing away thousands of dollars away for this company to gain.

It is a complete deception! They will let you pay and open an account for "the application", and you sit there waiting for nothing. Never fall for the advertisement because they know your chances after the assessment but never discloses the truth! After they take your money, they will move on to convince new applicants, completely forgetting about you.

Most of the staff working for this firm are Chinese/Koreans . They use the name of this Canadian Lawyer to seem professional. Don't be deceived. They are crooks who will again have a Canadian front man to call you into signing up with them. Once you pay, a Chinese/Korean staff will take over your application, who may also be handling 100 more applicants. They don't have a system so you will be passed on to one staff after another; you might have to repeat your story again and again when you call or email to follow up.

Save yourself the trouble. There are probably thousands out there who've wasted money on this fraudulent firm. Don't be one of us.

    Hello Aries Cruz,

    I have tried to locate your file with our firm, but without your complete name or email address, I have no way to review your case to determine exactly what happened.

    However, I would like to address some of the claims you’ve made in this complaint. First, we assess, based on the information you provide to us, whether you meet the minimum eligibility criteria set by the Government of Canada for an existing immigration program. If we determine that you do meet the criteria, based on the information you provide us, we inform you of the options available to you, and offer our services to prepare and submit an application, on your behalf, for Canadian immigration.

    We clearly inform our clients of how the immigration program, and particularly the Express Entry system you’re referring to, work. We provide our Express Entry clients with an extensive documentation guide prepared by the Canadim Team, and we also have several resources on our website that explain the Express Entry system in particular. Your claim that the points system never goes down to 450 is not true. At the time of your writing this complaint, the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required to receive an invitation to apply had reached 450 twice. Since then, in the last 11 consecutive draws the score has been below 450, and reached as low as 413.

    The federal department that oversees Canadian immigration occasionally makes changes to the Comprehensive Ranking System to improve it and best meet the labour market needs of the country. Although we do have some idea about what changes are coming up, we have no way of determining how low the minimum required CRS score might go within the time of our clients’ contract. We therefore cannot provide clients with their “real chances of getting invited to apply for PR”. If we had informed you, on January 7, 2017, that you required at least 450 CRS points to have a chance, we would have been proven wrong on February 8, 2017, when the minimum CRS dropped to 447.

    After your Express Entry profile is submitted and you’re in the pool, continue to work with you and on your behalf to help further improve the competitiveness of your profile. That’s why we offer our Canadian employment services to help you connect with Canadian employers and find a job in Canada, and continuously monitor the dozens of Provincial Nominee Programs available.

    We are also proud to have a diverse team of immigration experts at Canadim Law Firm, reflecting the diversity and multiculturalism of Canada. Our managing partner Attorney Renaud Dery is a certified immigration lawyer in good standing with the Barreau du Québec.

    Fraud is an accusation that we take very seriously, and I categorically reject your claim that we are fraudulent. The Canadim Law Firm was established in 2001 and have helped thousands of people successfully receive their Canadian visas.
